Default WL Rescue, first GSD...Introducing, JAEGER!

Hello all! I am not actually new here, but havent posted all that much... that is, until now.

I have finally gotten my first GSD I am a first time GSD owner. I'm a 24 year old college grad working part time as a veterinary assistant and also part time in the animal training department of my local aquarium. My life goal is to be an animal trainer/behaviorist of some kind. Right now my plan is to hopefully work with either marine mammals or some sort of zoo/exotics and then move onto dog training once I'm too old to be tangling with wild animals

But now for the more important part of this post... I'd like you all to meet Jaeger !



Jaeger is an 11 month old GSD who was surrendered to my local shelter about 2 weeks ago because his former owner did not have the time for him. Within 30 mins of them posting his picture, I was there on my lunch break, begging the shelter owner to not let anyone take him until I could get my mom down there to meet him (I'm currently living at home to save money, and so needed Mom's approval). He was raised with a Boston Terrier and a cat which is why I was adamant about getting him, as I have two cats and a bichon frise living at home.

Jaeger was bred by Joe Macari, who is a local vineyard owner (Macari Vineyards of Long Island, NY) who also breeds GSDs. I'm not positive on this, but I believe he is breeding working line shepherds (Jaeger and all of the other pups I've seen come from the Macari's look like WL to me, all sables, blacks, and bicolors). I actually happen to know the owner of Jaeger's half sister, and they got to meet each other and play at the dog park a few days ago. Here's a pic of them side by side... its like a mirror image haha



Anyways, here's some more pics of my beautiful boy. He's been with me for just about a week now







Thanks for reading/looking!
